Dear Loyal BS!ers,
Rob here. First, I’d like to apologize for the abrupt absence of our show. I’m sure you have noticed the lack of the BS! Podcast in the last couple weeks and I’m really sorry I couldn’t get an official heads-up to you sooner. I really wanted to give you all one last podcast episode to explain the situation but, for reasons I’m about to outline, that hasn’t been possible.
On the last episode, Mike and I outlined how the show would sound going forward. What we didn’t know is that the plan we had would hit an abrupt roadblock. I had planned to move to Kansas City as soon as my contract with my employer was up at the end of November. Instead of having two months to save and prepare for my move, my employer decided to lay me off on early October. Without any financial support, I pushed my move forward and am now very happily (for the most part) living in Kansas City.
As of today, I’m still unemployed but I am making great strides towards remedying that situation. Without a steady income stream, I’ve had to strip back any non-essentials like internet access. No internet means no Skype, means no recording with Mike, means no Episodes. More than that, it means no means to upload anything I would record. I’ve tried to use the local library system but the speed is still so slow that I can’t complete a simple file transfer.
There is also the issue of having a few real life issues I need to address, namely my employment. I don’t have the free time to dedicate to production of a podcast when I have to hit the pavement looking for a job. My job hunt is going very well and I’m hoping to be working again by the end of the month.
As soon as I get a new job and a couple pay checks under my belt, the internet is the first thing I plan on getting installed. Once that happens, I’ll be back on Skype with Mike recording the BS! Podcast. Luckily, BS! Radio has just syndicated our first show (Misdirected Mark) and it looks like John and Dan are back to bringing you weekly wrestling history lessons (Wrestling Sunday School) so the site isn’t totally dead.
Again, I apologize for keeping everyone in the dark for so long. I really wanted to do this on the podcast, but I’ve had to accept that it’s simply not a possibly for me right now. Rest assured, the BS! Podcast will be back. This is just a bump on the road and I hope you all stick with us during the rough spot.
Our goal here at BS! Radio is simple: New content every single day. While we hope to have exclusive content for you every day, we’ve also looked into creating a network of syndicated shows for you too. We’re proud to announce our first syndication, The Misdirected Mark Podcast! I’ll let their website tell you a bit about the show.
The Misdirected Mark was conceived in the brains of Mark Knapik and Christopher M. Sniezak as a Blog and Podcast to talk about Gaming, Gamemastering, and anything else we felt like talking about but now it’s so much more. Not only do we talk about Gaming and Gamemastering but we have an ongoing story, try our best to connect with the people who listen to us, try and help out our local gaming communities, and do our best to entertain. We love gaming and everything it can do to make peoples lives more fulfilling and we want to help spread that love.
Misdirected Mark episodes will air on BS! Radio every Tuesday morning. Misdirected Mark is a great addition for our RPG enthusiast listeners. Check back here next Tuesday morning for #82 – Breaking Out!
We recently updated our Permalink structure, that’s the way WordPress parses out posts into a URL, which means any old links might 404 when you get here. This will mostly affect people coming in from old Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and forum posts. We apologize for the inconvenience but this new method makes the URL much cleaner (and improves how search engines handle the site) so we hope you can forgive us.
It’s that time of the year again. GenCon is happening and Rob & Mike (along with John from Wrestling Sunday School) will be attending. If you’re planning on being at GenCon this year there are a couple events we’d love for you to check out. If you can’t make it, and still want to say hi I’ve included a list of great ways to contact us during the convention.
